How to catch error in session variable in globals.asax(Application_Error) and redirect to same page

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi, i have a login page where username got to enter his/her username or password. When you try to enter any scripting over there eg:'<asd>' it gives an error  'Server Error in '/' Application' 'A Potentially dangerous Request. Form value was detected from client' I don't want to redirect user to custom error page when such unpredictable error occurs. infact i got a label on the same page itself where error's are displayed. how can i display such errors on this very same label. can i do that using globals Application_Error ?. Session variable not working here. Please give me the exact steps for how i can catch and display the error which are not validated. waiting for reply thanks and regards, Learning Programmer

Session time out alert box and redirect login page


Dear all,

Now I am using Form authentication for my website. 

It is something like that below. But if I left the website without using it for quite some time and when I used it back, it is redirected to the login page. 

The one I want to know is that it is because of session expire or cookies expire. And if it is session expired, I want to show the alert box and redirect to the login page. And one more thing is that if the user keeps on using the website, I want to extend the session expire time. If you do not mind, I want to have some references for this scenario. Thank you so much.

Response.Redirect cannot be called in a page callback error message.


Hi.  I'm using the Dundas Chart Controls in VS 2005.  These controls are built utilizing AJAX.  I have a basic page with a dundas chart control containing a funnel chart.  The funnel contains Quotes, Sales Orders and Invoices.  When the user clicks on the control, I want to determine whether they clicked on Quotes, Sales Orders or Invoices and transfer to the appropriate Details Page.  I've got the code working to determine which transaction type they clicked on; but, I get the "Response.Redirect cannot be called in a page callback." error when the page tries to redirect.  Note: I get a similar issue if I try server.transfer.


 Here's my code:

Dim hitTestResult As Dundas.Charting.WebControl.HitTestResult = Chart1.HitTest(e.X, e.Y)

            If Not (hitTestResult Is Nothing) Then

                Dim clicked As Dundas.Charting.WebControl.DataPoint = hitTestResult.Series.Points(hitTestResult.PointIndex)

                Select Case hitTestResult.PointIndex
                    Case 0

Handling 404 page not found with Error page

Retrieving a variable from a previous page



I'm looking to have a search page where a user will select an item from a listview, then then taken to another page that wil display data based on their original selection.

A user will type in a string and be presented with a list of usernames that are like that string, when they select a user name who's profile they would like to view I would like the page that they're taken to, to be that users profile.

How would I transfer the variable from the search page to the profile page, and when I work on the profile page, how can I access that variable?


urlrouting - page not found error


I have a dynamic data site setup and running locally fine from vs 2008.

When i deploy to a remote windows 2003 server (IIS6), all the pages also work ok apart from one page/table.  I can access it's list page,  but the edit and insert pages throw 404 errors.

I'm thinking it's a url routing/hosting issue as i've copied back the database from the remote server and it all works fine on my local machine.

Is there anything i can do to debug this behaviour?

Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!

Redirect to a mobile page

Hi please can anyone help? I have a simple website with a home page called defaut.aspx, also I have a page with in this site called mobile.aspx. My question is, bearing in mind that I posses very little knowledge of VB, what code do I need to place in the default.aspx to detect what kind of device someone is using and redirect them to the mobile page (mobile.aspx)? This needs to be quite up-to-date preferably for blackberry and nokia devices?

Session Variable issues


Hello everyone,

I ran into an issud to day with the follwoing code.  The strPanelOrder session variable is false, however, once it goes into the next if statement and sets the strTrimOrder to True, it changes the strPanelOrder session varialbe to true as well.  Why is this and how to I stop that from happening?

If Session(strPanelOrder) Is "False" Then
                If (strItemNumber.Length() = 10) And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FC" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DC") Then
                    Session(strPanelOrder) = "True"
                End If
End If
If Session(strTrimOrder) Is "False" Then
               If (strItemNumber.Substring(4, 1) = "T") And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) <> "AC") And (strItemNumber <> "Length") Then
                    Session(strTrimOrder) = "True"
                End If
End If


Thanks in advance for taking a look at this.
